👍 Reasons to Buy

  • High-quality craftsmanship and truly sturdy.
  • Multiple ways to access the main compartment. This is convenient as you don't have to unpack when grabbing things located at the middle or bottom of the entire pack as the back panel can be unzipped to give you full access to it.
  • Has a minimalistics design yet highly functional.
  • Multiple reviewers claim that this bag is comfortable to carry even for extended periods of time.

🤔 Things to Consider

  • Quite packs a little more weight than its competitions (bags with the same capacity and functionality)
  • Some users say that the water-bladder nozzle holder can get caught up in a shirtsleeve.
  • Could use some more attachment points for outdoor gears considering that this is crag bag.

💬 Reviewers Have Said

  • "Two separate ways to load the main compartment makes organization a breeze. by unzipping around the straps you can lay the bag flat and load with ease. While on the trail you can access from the top or store items that are more readily needed in the top compartment of the bag. The straps feel great and the bag rides higher on your back as it should. Great fit, and durable, I use this bag daily."
  • "Awesome pack to carry a ton of gear. 45L easily holds a rope, rack, shoes, gear, lunch, and water for your climbing outing. Love the fit of the bag. Great features."
  • "My friends and I tried out lots of other climbing packs and this is just hands down the best. The accessibility, the simplicity, the comfort, and the robust nature of the material/zippers are just unparalleled."
  • "This is the perfect climbing bag and travel bag. I simply keep almost my entire sport climbing kit in the bag and just grab on my way out the door and to the crag. The bag can hold a 70 meter rope, rack of draws, quad anchor, and an assortment of other carabiners, slings, and anchor materials. There is one large compartment for all of the gear with a few strap to hooks gear onto, then another top compartment that is easily accessible and it a nice place to store your lunch, camera, or other items that you don't want mixed into your mass of dirty gear. Finally, there's a "valuables" zippered pocket in the top compartment to hold your wallet and keys"

Field Tested: Patagonia Cragsmith 45L
www.thealpinestart.com

"The original Cragsmith was already one of my favourite all-around packs and the new one is just all-around better. It’s comfortable even heavily loaded, has enough compartments to keep my OCD organized and it works great both at the crag and as a travel bag. ...At a retail price of $239 CAD / $199 USD, the Cragsmith 45L is one of the most useful backpacks I have and is very highly recommended."

Patagonia Cragsmith 45 Review

"In conclusion, the Patagonia Cragsmith 45 is great improvement on the Crag Daddy 45, and although it’s the same capacity it feels bigger. I like the way the foam gives it stiffness and it stands upright when loading it. It has a clean look yet has enough features to make it useful for a full day out."
